    Poor Wigan. Are they no longer a British football club?

    And they get a cool trip to Rubin Kazan!

  2. IanCransonsKnees says:

    Gaffer, I implore you to make the trip to Valencia. Absolutely fantastic city, stunning architecture and fantastic food, drink and hospitality.

    Likely one of the peaks of my football supporting life.

    Have a look at these pictures of Stoke on tour there:

    • Christopher Harris says:

      I’d LOVE to go, but businesses in the US haven’t heard of cut-price airlines yet! A roundtrip ticket from Miami to Valencia is £1628 compared to £79 from Birmingham to Alicante.

      • IanCransonsKnees says:

        Don’t go direct to Valencia. Try to Alicante then take the RENFE. Match tickets will cost around £12.

        • Christopher Harris says:

          Actually the Miami-Valencia airline ticket cost was with the plane going to Alicante.

          • IanCransonsKnees says:

            When the draw was made for us to play Valencia within 30 minutes the prices went up from £80 to £400 to get direct to Valencia.
